Recalibration

I went to Ahmedabad, India to visit family last month. My daily journeys through the city were chaotic, and consistently so – whether they were via rickshaw, the back of my cousin’s motorcycle (imagine skydiving with a thousand people), or by playing human Frogger in the streets.

I spent time with loved ones I hadn’t seen in ten years; endless dinners, stories, laughter and pinched cheeks. It was everything I went there for with a bonus: developing a deeper appreciation for the quiet moments. This slideshow is a catalog of the moments where I found that surprising, recalibrating silence in the loudest place on earth.
